School Reviews

My family has been at the School of Saint Elizabeth for 12 years and we are thrilled with it. Our children are intelligent, thoughtful, well-spoken, curious and athletic as a result of the teachers and programs at the school. The staff is lead by Mr. Venezia, who keeps them sharp, well-trained and current on all cutting edge teaching methods. I have one child that has graduated and is enrolled in all honors classes in high school. He was well-prepared by the School of Saint Elizabeth on all levels; math, sciences, language arts, history and athletics.

This is our first year at St E''s and we could not be happier. We moved our 1st grader to St E''s because we wanted a "back to basics" environment in the classroom, but what we got was so much more. Besides blossoming in the "core" areas of reading, writing, science and math, our son is learning Latin (in addition to Spanish) and script handwriting. The school truly empowers each child to "make a difference" with an environment where respect, courtesy and kindness are not just taught but lived each day thru the students, teachers and administration.
